We have a Garland H286 Range. The oven's pilot light went out for some reason and will not stay lit. The stove-top burners, however, work fine. Please help.

Re: Oven pilot light won't light

It is usually a bad thermocouple. Mine had only had a weak pilot flame and the problem turned out to be a corroded and leaking pilot gas line. It was leaking whee it enters at the bottom of the oven chamber.

What can go wrong with a garland thermocouple?

Make sure the thermocouple is screwed securely into the safety valve... it is a -tiny- voltage and a small loss can drop the pilot. Also make sure the pilot flame covers the last 1/3 of the thermocouple element, you don't wan to cover the whole thing. Check for errant air currents that might be blowing the pilot out.

Oven not working. gas on stove top is working. not sure if gas is not getting to oven or if there is another problem causing the oven not to heat up.

Check the pilot light assembly.Make sure the pilot is lit.If it looks good the thermocouple may be bad. If the pilot is lit,I would call for the repairman.

Where can i get parts for a garland starfire gas oven

Our oven pilot light will not stay on - we have to relight all the time. We have had the thermocouples replaced already and it is only two years old. The seller will no longer work on it for us. Says it is our fault in that we MUST be doing something wrong.

Pilot relighting Garland Commercial range

The main burner valve is the oven valve. The pilot will be next to the burner and you either have to insert a long shiskabob stick ( lit) into the hole or lift up on the bottom of the oven (inside) and you will see the pilot.

Every couple of days the pilot light goes out.

Hello. It sounds like you are able to relight it, and all is good till the next time. I would suggest replacing the thermocouple for the oven, and cleaning the pilot. The pilot is probably dirty, they draw dust into them while burning, and thermocouples are reasonably priced. You could be having a problem with your pilot safety, the part with the red button that you push to relight the pilot, however it is easier, and cheaper to get a new t'couple,and clean the pilot first.

You can go to: or call them for parts 1.800.424.2411. There are many part suppliers online that can get what you need.

Hope that helps, and thank you.

Garland stove oven pilot light does not stay lit

If there is any adjustment, it would be a small screw on the oven control accessible with the oven control knob removed. This adjustment affects the size of the top burner pilots, but I'm not sure about the oven. The oven pilot orifice may have an obstruction, or if the flame is actually normal size where it covers the thermocouple when it burns, you may have a thermocouple problem.

Gas meter was changed upon relighting,top burners pilots are on but oven not

under each (the) oven behind a panel, is a red button it may be a different color from time. this has to be pushed and held while the pilot light under the oven floor is lit with a match. it has to be held to allow enough heat to activate the thermocouple, which will keep the pilot on. if this does not work there may be an additional problem
